– The national chairman of the GOGAN, Chief Felix Idiga, explained that President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election will pave way for Igbo presidency in 2023
– Idiga said it is only President Buhar that can handover power to an Igbo man to rule Nigeria
– The group national chairman, however, maintained that the president is a man of integrity
A political pressure group working for actualisation of President Buhari’s re-election bid, Good Governance Ambassadors of Nigeria (GOGAN), on Wednesday, August 29 said the president’s continuity in 2019 will pave way for Igbo in 2023.
Vanguard reports that the group national chairman, Chief Felix Idiga, who made this known in Abuja, also called on the people of south east geo-political zone to support the ambition of the president.
President Buhari conferred with the title of Ochioha NdiIgbo 1 by south east traditional council of rulers led by Eze Eberechi during his visit to Ebonyi state on Tuesday, November 14, 2017.
Idiga said: “And I believe, especially people from the south east, I am from the east, I believe that we have to work harder because, my brothers from the north, you should not be angry. People from the south east know that this is the only president that handover power to an Igbo man to rule Nigeria after 2023.
“I keep telling my people that we shouldn’t make the mistake because if they make mistake and give the 2019 presidency to another person, which I know can never happen, it will take another twenty years before the South East zone will produce a president.
“So, I encourage every one of us to work harder to make sure that we sensitize our people for the re-election of our President, Muhammadu Buhari come 2019.
He also charged all Nigerians to vote for the re-election of President Buhari in 2019 because his integrity is what Nigeria deserves at a time like this. Idiga noted that the President is governing Nigeria very well through the boosting of various infrastructural developments in the country.
Idiga added: “And we all have to be very careful, President Muhammadu Buhari, you all know is a man of integrity.
“We don’t want a situation when you go back to your state and you say because you are a member of GOGAN you involve yourself in fraudulent act. “GOGAN is an organisation that promotes good governance.
“And you will try to avoid collecting money from people because many people would want to invest in GOGAN and at the end of the day, they will go and announce that they gave President Muhammadu Buhari’s people money to campaign.
“In her remarks, the president’s special assistant on social media, Lauretta Onochie, commended the GOGAN chairman and coordinator who she said is spending his personal finances to see to the success of the project.
“Stability was the first thing in our campaigns. You have to secure a country first before you can efficiently manage it. Before businesses can thrive, security is paramount. That is why we lay so much emphasis on securing the country, and that is what President Muhammadu Buhari is doing.”
Meanwhile, eagleee.com had reported that the Obi of Onitsha, His Royal Majesty Igwe Alfred, Nnaemeka Achebe, called for restructuring of Nigeria saying that will allow different regions to thrive independently.
The monarch also said he preferred restructuring of the country to Igbo presidency in year 2023.
